Camp Clearwater

1720 Clearwater Lake Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27517

Camp Clearwater is an experience just like the summer camps you remember as a kid, but with a modern twist. These camps offer the fun of being outdoors and give kids the opportunity to take part in traditional camp activities like archery, canoeing, and field games.

Located on 26 acres in southeast Orange County, Camp Clearwater provides an exciting, safe place for kids to explore outdoors, build self-esteem and make lasting friendships. Our counselors focus on teaching YMCA core values like caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through teambuilding activities and challenges. Camp Clearwater is open for campers in rising grade 1 - 8.

Camp Clearwater is operated through the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.

Listed base fees assume parent/guardian transportation to/from camp. Please see the transportation options and related fees detailed below.

Preparing for Camp

Each day is an adventure at YMCA Summer Day Camp. We want to make sure you and your camper are ready for all the fun. Find out what you need to bring to day camp and what to leave at home. 

Our Counselors

YMCA Summer Day Camp Counselors are hired based on their enthusiasm, energy and maturity. All counselors receive training in everything from managing a group of energetic kids to basic first aid. 

Character Counts

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, we reinforce good behavior, model positive character traits and help children grow into responsible adults. 

At Camp, Character Matters

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, campers earn beads for exemplifying our five character traits: Honesty, Respect, Caring, Responsibility and Faith. Campers can earn beads daily by being a good friend, picking up after themselves or leading a camp prayer.
